Telling the Hospital Story: Jefferson Healthcare

This summer, Jefferson Healthcare in Port Townsend, Wash., is modernizing their campus to continue meeting the growing needs of their community.

The expansion project — which involves replacing a building constructed in 1965 — includes an updated cafeteria and construction of new and larger medical office space for units ranging from oncology, dermatology, and obstetrics and gynecology to a wound clinic and express clinic. New service lines will include a linear accelerator for radiation oncology.

Currently, Jefferson County oncology patients must travel two-to-three hours roundtrip to neighboring counties for brief radiation treatment visits. Jefferson Healthcare leaders predict that over 200 patients annually will benefit from this new, local treatment option, saving cancer patients and their loved ones countless hours of driving and time.
